New, comments

Justin Hamilton just made his way out of the D-League. Now, after signing with the Heat for the remainder of the season, they are sending Hamilton back to the SkyForce for the weekend.

Justin Hamilton probably thought his D-League days were over after signing on with the world champion Miami Heat last week for the remainder of the season. But just as Spring arrives, the Heat are sending Hamilton back to the SkyForce for the weekend to play two games before returning to the Heat before Monday's game.

Here's the official release from the Miami Heat:

MIAMI, FL, MARCH 20 - The Miami HEAT announced today that center Justin Hamilton will join the Sioux Falls Skyforce for their NBA Development League home games this Friday and Saturday against the Idaho Stampede. Following Saturday night's game, he will re-join the HEAT in Miami for their contest against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night.

Hamilton, who was signed by the HEAT on March 14, appeared in 37 games (all starts) with the Skyforce earlier this season and averaged 19.3 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.03 blocks, 1.5 assists and 35.8 minutes while shooting 49.1 percent from the field, 38.5 percent from three-point range and 81.2 percent from the foul line. The 2014 NBA D-League All-Star has not appeared in a game with Miami this season.
